Brief Look into Winter 2012-2013

Here are forecasted precipitation and temperature anomalies (respectfully) for DJF (December, January, February). These forecasts are from the Ensemble Canonical Correlation Analysis (ECCA) forecast system at the Climate Prediction Center.

For precipitation, the ECCA is projecting above normal precipitation across the northern US, but also majorly in the West US, where a 40% chance is present. For the North US, it looks like widespread areas of up to 10% are present. The same is present in the Northeast.

As for temperatures, it appears a major area of below normal temperatures are forecasted in the Plains, Midwest, Ohio Valley, South Plains, Southeast, Northwest, Southwest. The High Plains and Northeast are slightly above normal, though.

This is simply a look into next winter and not a forecast.
